Headlights

I bought a 7 inch led headlight . The website said it would fit but it's too big. I know I should have measured but is there any way to make it fit

Duct tape will work for awhile.

Buy a 7" headlight bucket that uses H-D headlight mounting.

Get a 5.75" led.
It is not plug and play unless you have a mounting bracket.

How is your new headlight working Hans, any night testing yet.

It seems to be good. Approaching traffic at night blinds me(old age syndrome).
High beam is very good.
With my two 6 watt spots aimed slightly to the right and a bit of down tilt the combination makes for a very good low beam.

Agreed. Seen it somewhere years and years ago and been using it since.
